The Beauty of Kimonos


3:30pm to 4:30pm



All are welcome to this event to celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month in May!




Kimono is a unique style of dress in traditional Japan with a fascinating history. Learn about different materials and designs used to make kimonos, occasions to wear them, and a glimpse of the manner associated with the special dress from expert Takako Sasaki. Members of the audience may volunteer as a model to be dressed in kimono. Several members of the Torrance-based Japanese Cultural Promotion Association, Nadeshikokai, will demonstrate the various materials and styles.
